You picking is getting better and better during each vid! It's great to see you get this good this quick!!!! I like what your playing there and it's a very cool mod of the lick. Take a sec and watch the original demo video again and I start about half way through to play the lick in a looping type fashion which is what I'm looking for as the final for this mission. Give this a quick watch!



This one has very odd timing so if you can do it like it is in the vid, with a metronome, just SINGLE PICKING will get you the badge!! Skip the multi picking for now as there is plenty of time for that later and the timing of this piece makes it very odd to multi pick.

Thanks Todd! Yes this is difficult. I am having an issue with my metronome, it is set at 400-530bpm and it can only click bars. If I click the box to sound on beats it Adds that accent. I can't change the sound of that either. Either way here is another vid.

Ok I took a look at that vid and found I was playing it wrong. Also I realized my tendency to sweep when crossing strings. I'll report back to duty. Ah ten hut?

Good man!!! I'm going to try to make short demo vids for all the missions, but if there is a vid in there it's worth a watch! Looking forward to your NEXT FIGHT SOLDIER!!!

Hi Sarge! Here are 3 videos the first is your boot camp



The second is a lick I'm working on in a gmc lesson. It's supposed to be 16th trips but I'm just at the 1/8 trips for now.


The third is a hybrid practice. At one point I hit a nice clean muted semi Greg Howe"ish" tone...



All three of these techniques I am gaining. So thanks!

Hey sarge!





I'm finding 120 Bpm is my fastest speed switching strings and playing complicated rhythms. This is the speed in which I will strive to increase!

Sarge Thanks! I shall pursue the next mission. Do you have any feedback for 12? Let me know what I need to change.

Todd, these missions are really helping me. They are exciting and when I'm soloing I can hear the missed notes more and when I am nailing it I feel control and it just sounds crisp. Another great thing is the motivation that came from looking for weakness in myself. Take Care Sarge!

UPDATE: Soldier, it looks like the videos "day12" etc. are getting out of synch with the missions. Just for the sake of clarity, if you are on MISSION 12 for example, please title the video MISSION 12. And if you do MISSION 13 and then MISSION 14 vids, title them as such. So that by looking at the title of the vid I can tell which mission it is. Currently "day 12" is actually two separate missions, once of which is MISSION 13.

DEBRIEF ON MISSION 13

This one needs just a bit more blood. You have got the lick down! But I want to see you do clean double picking and clean triple/quad picking as well on this. Which means you may need to slow the metronome down. MISSION 13 is the double chevron badge up. It's mile stone. So I want it perfect soldier!!

Also, as your playing gets better, I"m hoping I can help you get better recordings. Your guitar is a bit hard to hear and I can't hear individual pick strikes. I'd like to try to work with you to get your recordings up to the level of your playing. All part of BOOT CAMP SOLDIER!!

Sarge

P.S.

I"m glad the missions are helping smile.gif You are really making great progress so keep it up!!!! These are built to show any weak bits in your range/technique/etc. I make use of every string in some of them to show you if there are gaps in your muting, some focus on gaps in picking technique etc. I can tell you've worked through many of the things that troubling your playing and i see you getting better every single day!!!!!
